Welcome to the sixth episode of CopperCasts!

This time, we’re joined by Iain Wilson, CFO of the NEM Project, one of the oldest blockchain projects in the crypto market.

CopperCasts are split into two parts. The first is a short (2min) video in which our guest shares with us something they find unusual or inspiring about the digital asset space. The second half is a traditional audio-only podcast, which you can stream at the bottom of this page, or search for it in iTunes.

In his Show & Tell segment, Iain points to a World Economic Forum (WEF) prediction that around 10% of global gross domestic product (GDP) is likely to be stored on the blockchain by 2027, and explores what the tokenisation of bonds, stocks, currencies and commodities could mean for financial markets.

In our longer conversation, we hear how Iain left his role as a portfolio manager of a $25bn fund to join NEM – originally known as the ‘New Economy Movement’. He also takes us through the journey of building Symbol - NEM's new enterprise-grade blockchain solution, discusses working with the Central Bank of Lithuania on LBCoin (hailed the world’s first blockchain-based digital collector coin), and reveals the projects he's most excited about in the crypto and blockchain space.
